Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common medical condition that arises from a problem within the electrical system of the heart. Although it is widespread - 30 million sufferers worlwide - one of its peculiarities is that many sufferers are not aware they have it and it is discovered after a collapse or as an 'incidental finding', for example, when a patient's pulse is being monitored in association with surgery or other medical procedure.
Hi, my name is Ron. I would just like to mention that I suffer from atrial fibrillation, and I read the book after meeting with Warrick, and I found it absorbing and most interesting. And I would recommend it to anyone who suffers not only this disease, but any other heart problems as well.
Hi, I'm Matthew. I found out recently that I've got AF. At the start, it was a shock to the system, but once I got my hands on this book - I'm seeing Dr. Bishop at the moment - I've gone through his book and it is fantastic. It's such a relief. It's so handy to have information just to relieve all of the anxiety, and know where you are in the process.
Hi, my name is Cindy, and I'm currently studying at uni, upgrading from EN to RN, and I came across this book, which I found incredibly useful for my degree. It's well-written and referenced. It's easy to follow with great illustrations. It explains this complicated condition in a way that I feel I understand it now. If you are looking for a book on atrial fibrillation, I would definitely recommend this one. Thank you.

Thank you so much for joining me for the very first of the Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack Show. hope everyone's well. This is the beginning of a new year.

I believe we can prevent heart attack. We can put in place strategies to reduce risk. We can literally plan to change your future. I call it Healthy Heart Network. Hi, Warrick Bishop here. Welcome to the Healthy Heart Network Live Monthly show. This is part of my involvement in the Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack facebook group. A month ago, I did my first facebook live show and it seemed well-received. People generally left positive remarks and I'm really pleased to say that a number of people left questions, and I'm going to look to address some of those today.
Welcome to this healthy Heart Network Live Show. It's a follow on from questions that have been put in Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack in the Facebook group, and it's really an opportunity for me to share with you guys and hopefully provide some answers to questions and provide a little bit of education in balance. So, what I try and do is a little bit of a case story, a little bit of education, as well. So, I cover both of those tonight. Without further ado. Tonight, we're going to be talking about amyloid, a little bit about amyloid, and we're going to be talking about searching for the truth. So, Healthy Heart Network is my Facebook group. If you're not a part of it, please feel free to join. It is free. I do speaking to it once a month and I do try to answer questions. This month, Tony has been good enough to fire a few questions at me, and so has Iris. So, a little bit of stuff to answer for them. What I'll start off with is for Iris, who asked a little bit about amyloidosis, because her husband had been diagnosed with it.
